About Dennis Engelhard

Hi there. I’m Dennis and I make retro-style video games.

My current project is ‘Nevermore’ - a sidescrolling action-adventure set in a fairy-tale version of 19th century Central Europe.

In the game, you will join a freshly risen vampire on her journey to figure out her new powers, gather allies and - most importantly - bite a lot of tasty people.

The game will be released on PC for Windows and Linux. If demand and funding allow for it, console-ports might be a possibility.

So how does this work and what’s in it for you?

While I do the graphics and coding myself, funding will be needed to pay my composer for the music and sound-effects for the game. I also plan to hire a concept-artist for professional artwork for the game. The income from this patreon will be used to cover these expenses.

And - even if it is just a wild dream right now - if this patreon generates enough for me to be able to reduce hours on my day job, I can spend more time working on my games and bring them to you faster.

If you support me, you will be able to follow the development progress - you’ll get to see early screenshots and scenes from the game and listen to the soundtrack. You will also see teasers and trailers before they go public. If you have a Discord-Account, being a patron allows you to access an exclusive channel on my server.

When the game releases, everyone who has already covered the games’ cost with their patronage will get it for free. (this is for the PC-version. In the case of potential console-ports, it will depend on whether the respective platforms allow me to give the game away like that).

Thank you. Your support means a lot to me.


When will the game come out?
As I am a solo-developer, there will never be a more definitive answer than “when it’s done”.

What will the system requirements be?
While it is too early to call specifics, please note this only looks like an old game - but it isn’t one. You will need a PC with a dedicated graphics card that supports OpenGL ES 3.
